Do You Have High Arches?
If your arch is high, you have a pes cavus (high-arched foot). A high arch may not cause any symptoms for some people, but for others, it can lead to discomfort. Symptoms vary depending on the degree of the arch. To determine the best treatment for high arches and other foot conditions, your podiatrist will examine the foot and perform a gait analysis. They will also look at your medical history, past medical problems, length, the frequency of symptoms in determining the best treatment plan.
